The American Story Through the African American Lens

Sunday, February 25 at 12 PM in the Community Hall

 Dr. Dwan Reece’s reflections on her work of telling the American Story based upon her work at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.

First Church is so privileged to have our own Dwan Reece share her personal and professional journey at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC)  To the world, she is the founding Curator of Music and Performing Arts at NMAAHC, a role she has had since 2009.  Prior to her work at the Smithsonian, she was the Senior Program Officer for the National Endowment for the Humanities.  Her training is in the arts as she has a PH.D in Performance Studies from New York University, a MA in American Culture from the University of Michigan, and a Bachelors in Arts from Scripps College.  To us, she is a beloved member of the church and a beautiful soprano.  Please join us for this wonderful opportunity.
